Evidence of dinosaur-killing asteroid impact found on the Moon

Asteroid impacts on the Moon millions of years ago match large space rock impacts here on Earth – including the massive impact that wiped out the non-avian dinosaurs.

The discovery reveals that major impacts during Earth’s prehistory were not isolated events. Instead, these asteroid strikes were accompanied by a series of smaller hits both here and on the moonwhose surface is littered with more than 9,000 craters left by space rock impacts.
